Product Description:  Pro-PCA Fuel/Raspberry 1000grm Powder is available by Douglas Laboratories.

Pro-PCA Fuel is designed to be used during the Three Phases of the Training Cycle, as indicated in the dosage table below. Pro-PCA Fuel is one of the first sports performance products to consider the nutrient fueling needs of different sized athletes. PCA nutrient fueling is critically important for all serious athletes to mitigate the free radical and other damaging effects of vigorous exercise.

More Info:
Pro-PCA Fuel, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a revolutionary new sports nutraceutical formulation created to mitigate the health and performance damaging factors that result from vigorous exercise. Pro-PCA Fuel is unique in the sports performance market because it is the first product that provides a dosage schedule for the nutrient fueling needs of three classes of athletes based on their physical size. In addition, it also targets nutrient fueling proactively by administering the dosage during the three distinct phases of the training cycle:

1. Pre-Exercise (nutrient loading). 2. The Training Session (continued nutrient fueling). 3. Post Exercise Recovery (critical for every athlete). Pro-PCA Fuel contains a performance specific blend of high quality whey protein isolates and concentrate, high glycemic index carbohydrates (maltodextrin), and a rich supply of micronutrients that focus on the antioxidant factors needed to defend the athlete from the damaging effects of exercise. The formula also contains an acid buffering system to mitigate the destructive effects of acids formed during training.

Dr. Jeffery Skee, who designed this product exclusively for Douglas Laboratories, has presented evidence of eight damaging effects of vigorous exercise which he has termed “Exercise Induced Pathology (EIP),” a new sports performance disease. EIP includes the following factors: 1. Free radicals (destructive to all tissues in the body). 2. Acids (Disrupt the energy chain and directly damage tissue). 3. Ammonia (Headaches, blurred vision and cellular damage). 4. Inflammation (CRP–one chemical marker for heart disease). 5. Thermogenics (Heat kills athletic performance). 6. Direct cellular damage (Hemolysis of muscle & blood cells). 7. Hormonal disruption (Catabolic hormones liquefy muscles). 8. Chemical toxicity (Increased free radical damage, particularly to the heart).

Recent studies in the sports medicine literature have demonstrated the significant health and performance value of using various combinations of protein, carbohydrate and antioxidants (PCA) after exercise. These nutrient fuels work synergistically to mitigate the temporary physical effects of vigorous exercise while promoting improvements in exercise capacity and endurance.* PCA nutrient fueling also reduces the collective impact of Exercise Induced Pathology, which contributes to the expression of chronic degenerative diseases which increasingly impact athletes regardless of their size, age, gender or performance ability.

In one recent study that used PCA nutrient fueling after exercise, the athletes in the PCA group had a reduction in free radical damage of 69 percent at 24 hours post exercise. This study also showed that creatine phosphokinase (CPK), which is another important biochemical marker for exercise induced muscle damage, was reduced by 36 percent. Since serious athletes train four or more days per week, these significant reductions in free radical and CPK damage will translate into improved performance and better overall health for every athlete.

In another study measuring anabolic muscle growth, the athletes were given either a protein and carbohydrate supplement immediately after exercise or three hours after a training session. The group who received the supplement immediately after exercise had a 225 percent increase in protein synthesis, and a 375 percent increase in net protein balance. By contrast, the group who received the supplement three hours after exercise had a 20 percent loss of protein synthesis. One critically important point regarding these studies is the fact that they focus on post exercise as the point of nutrient intervention to improve athletic performance.

The protocol for Pro-PCA Fuel has been designed from a more medically responsible perspective by providing high level PCA nutrient fueling during the three phases of the training cycle; (1) Pre-Exercise, (2) The Training Session, and (3) Post Exercise Recovery. (continued on next page) Using this pro-active strategy in the Pro-PCA Fuel protocol will maximize multi-dimensional health and performance benefits for every serious athlete, which include the following:

1. Limits free radical damage to muscles and other tissue. 2. Dilutes acids that form during exercise. 3. Restores glycogen and electrolytes. 4. Reduces the production of ammonia. 5. Stimulates the anabolic hormone insulin. 6. Increases protein synthesis during training. 7. Limits catabolic hormone production. 8. Prevents damage to the immune system. 9. Improves hydration which helps manage thermogenics. 10. Increases antioxidant reserves which has a positive impact on both inflammation and chemical toxicity. Professional, Olympic and collegiate athletes have been actively looking for ways to improve their sports performance for decades.

Pro-PCA Fuel is designed to address these important issues which will allow each athlete to optimize their health and performance safely through the productive research in Clinical Nutrition that has emerged over the last 35 years. Since every athlete is unique in terms of their training schedule and nutritional adaptation responses, it may be necessary to adjust the dosage of Pro-PCA Fuel to meet these individual needs (Please refer to the Suggested Usage panel on the next page). The following examples will help every athlete adjust the timing of Pro-PCA Fuel, and the focus here is on the Pre-Exercise drink:

Example 1: If an athlete has a training session scheduled and their exercise routing begins with abdominal and low back sets (stomach crunches and back exercises where the stomach is compressed to perform back raises), it is advisable to have the Pre-Exercise drink 30 minutes or more before the training session begins to prevent stomach discomfort. This will also prevent regurgitation of the Pre-Exercise drink that may leave an after-taste. Self experimentation is necessary to determine each athlete’s unique timing of the Pre-Exercise drink.

Example 2: If the scheduled exercise is a distance run where the athlete will not have the Training Session drink available to them, it is advisable to increase the Pre-Exercise dosage of Pro-PCA Fuel by 50 percent and drink it 30 minutes before exercise. This strategy will maximize nutrient loading for the run while providing higher levels of PCA reserves. Nutrient fueling during the three phases of training is one of the most powerful strategies science has proven over the last decade. This is real winning edge technology; use it every time you engage in strength training, aerobic exercise or skills training!
